Orthopaedic Surgeon & Sports Medicine Specialist
Stanton Davis, MD specializes in arthroscopy and sports-related injuries of the shoulder, elbow and knee. Double board certified in orthopaedic surgery and orthopaedic sports medicine with advanced training in the rehabilitation and surgical treatment of injuries in active people, Dr. Davis utilizes the latest techniques, including orthobiologics, such as stem cell and platelet rich plasma, to reduce pain and speed his patients’ return to peak performance.
An Expert in Shoulder Revision Surgery
“I often receive referrals from physical therapists and physicians for patients who have not had good outcomes from previous shoulder and knee surgery. After I provide a successful result they are able to return to their active lifestyle faster, whether that’s on the athletic field, tending the farm or preparing for next hunting season.”
Former team physician of the San Francisco 49ers, Stanford University and Auburn University, Dr. Davis works hard to promote sports safety and injury prevention in youth sports, as well as treating adult injuries in the shoulder, elbow and knee, including cartilage and meniscal transplants. His experience providing orthopaedic care to athletes from the San Francisco Giants, San Jose Sharks, US Olympic team, Euro League Baseball and EuroBasket League enables him to apply that same level of care to his patients.
